Re: What Are We? A Ship, a Plane, a Bird, a Club, a Gang? The Smurfs?

to get back to the  topic:

i would like to imagine this comunity as a harbour, where pepole from all the wide of the intersea come or strand.
In many cases they get on smaler or bigger ships together for one adventurose trail to a specific ile of knowledge.
maybe they reach it, maybe they part after getting there or getting back here.. or they sit together afterwards in a gloomy off-topic thread to have a cold whatsoever together...

this would anyway make clear the point of pirate-speechyness wink

Re: What Are We? A Ship, a Plane, a Bird, a Club, a Gang? The Smurfs?

I'm not being negative -- I'm bringing up a point. You may agree, or you may not.

For those of you keeping score at home this is my point: It's more important that we do what we do in this community/group/club/gang/association/smurfs/football club/whatever-you-are-hung-up-on-calling-it than the term we use for ourselves.

And this is negative . . . how?

Re: What Are We? A Ship, a Plane, a Bird, a Club, a Gang? The Smurfs?

I think "welcome aboard" implies that the new forum member is embarking on a voyage of discovery, and we who are already on this voyage are glad for his company.  It implies that "we're all in this together"; "one for all and all for one".

A related term, which could have been applied to the people who left over the fracas last Summer, is "jumping ship". wink

i'm not much of a philosopher, but does defining what something is, make it exist more than before?
saying that it is something definitively, implies that it will stay that way.

“When I let go of what I am, I become what I might be.”
-Lao Tzu

conversely i like the harbour analogy.

oh and RE; the 'fracas',  rats leaving a sinking ship?    tongue

nah too harsh, but 'men overboard' was a bit harsh coming from one who swims in the same waters.

Since the releases are called Statler and Waldorf, perhaps we're just a couple of muppets.

But you're right:

"Questions are a burden to others. Answers a prison for onesself."

A rose by any other name would smell as sweet.

Re: What Are We? A Ship, a Plane, a Bird, a Club, a Gang? The Smurfs?

Nice to see so many different, contrasting, and similar definitions. Interesting Wux's question whether definition implies stasis; it might, but it also propels resistance to that, new becomings and voyages maybe. The rats leave the ship as the realise it is a ship, not a home.

@\/\//\/\:  I did think about that, though it was after I had posted.  Even if I had thought about while pondering my response, I probably would have left it out...even a jerk-ass like me has to know when to play nice.

I'm confused, which bit?


^ from my memories (of Dogtanian and the Three Muskehounds cartoon's so not the best source big_smile ) weren't the musketeers always fighting Cardinal Richleu?
who's the cardinal, all the other OS's?
bit confrontational innit?

oh and nice words on the 'rats' leaving a ship, not a home... I like that.  big_smile

Re: What Are We? A Ship, a Plane, a Bird, a Club, a Gang? The Smurfs?

^My root source on the Muskateers is also that cartoon. Watched it all the time (I have to blame something...). Confrontational? Most kids' telly seems to educate them for a life of war mongering, homophobia/homosexuality, drug abuse, confrontation, sex, "knowing where one is in the scheme of things".

By the way, don't think you broke the subsonic server- it's running off a raspberry pi, and has problems with the leap second bug/ntpd/java. I've restarted it and will mount the usbs now, though it will have to update its library which will take a sec. Sftp some media files over if you want- seems easier to do it that way than have subsonic's own upload function do it (that's why some music doesn't seem to work it seems). Seriously off topic here.

Well, we all enjoy breaking our systems, process killers, so I nominate that we are a pandemonium of pkillers.

I like to think of crunchbang forums as a safe house for distro junkies and conky-heads.

~ #! New comer - "hi all! New to #! Excited to get configuring my desktop. Tried Ubuntu for a while but x. y. and z. Now I'm here."

~ dark shadowy figure in the corner - "hey maan, *cough *sniff, you ever tried conky maan. Come over here in the screenshot thread maan. We all friends .."

I think we are Muppets in space big_smile

A flying space ship with #! logo on the sides and many crazy users poking the software from inside. Something like "U-u-u-u what does this button do?"

P.S.
Google for a famous cartoon Dexters Laboratory if you didn't watched it.

Dried frog pills
As their name suggests, these are pills made chiefly from frogs, specifically the extremely poisonous ones that live in the vivarium at Unseen University and handled by the first-year students, so that if they kill one of them, not too much education has been wasted.
